East African Breweries Limited (EABL), East Africa’s leading branded alcohol beverage company, was today hailed as the second best Company to Work for in Kenya following a survey conducted by consulting firm, Deloitte in which 163 companies participated.
The Best Company to Work for Survey and Award aims to identify and celebrate the best companies to work for as rated by their employees. The survey has been conducted annually globally by Deloitte since 2000 and in Kenya, since 2012. Since then, EABL has consistently been ranked among the top employers in the country, winning the top award in the inaugural commemoration of the event in 2012.
Speaking after receiving the award, Paul Kasimu, EABL’s Group Human Resources Director said, “We are proud to be recognized as a top employer in the country. No doubt this award further validates our consistent employer brand, having been among top 3 last year. The coveted award also attests to the hard work and commitment from each of our employees and ongoing resolve to act on feedback from our people.
Deloitte polled over 5,000 employees to determine how their employers ranked on standards such as workplace culture, organizational ethics, human resource processes, pay and employee’s confidence in the companies they work for.
Mr. Kasimu, Group Human Resources Director at EABL also said that it is their hope that their recognition as an employer of choice in Kenya will also be a magnet for new and promising talent in the world of work. “We are constantly looking to employ individuals who demonstrate passion, commitment and a drive for results and in order to attract this caliber of employees, we need to demonstrate that they will find what they need here- in terms of career growth and progression, reward and recognition and of course a comfortable and conducive working environment.”
